The schema will only ever check or care that there are 2 or 3 entries.
You can put whatever you want for the description. Or use 'oneOf' to
have the 2 entry and 3 entry cases.

We could be verbose about it using the 'uniqueItems' keyword, but I
try to make the bindings follow the common case (for DT) rather than
the default for json-schema. If you think about the purpose of
'*-names', non-unique entries would never make sense as the purpose is
to identify what each entry is.

Yes, probably so. It's ultimately up to you and the Qcom maintainers
what to do. I'm just providing how you could avoid the change.
